Have you ever wondered about the reason for things? Have you wondered why you are where you are in life, why you are doing what you are doing, why your life seems to have taken the turn it has? Even though you cannot answer these questions from a human standpoint—that is, not really answer them—you can find a satisfactory answer in the realization of the truth about yourself. If you realize that you are a spiritual being, a living soul sent out from God, that your life is without beginning or end, you can begin to see yourself and the events of your life from a different perspective. You are essentially a spiritual being, but you are at the same time a human being.
We tend to think a grand spiritual quest is necessary to discover God and our inner divinity. But there is no need to go anywhere or do anything to find God. In the midst of all experience, whether we label it spiritual or human, is Silence. Silence is the Ground of All Being. The modern-day Christian mystic Father Thomas Keating says, "The language of God is Silence. Everything else is a poor translation."
